Oh crap. I am so sorry. Christopher had a case of MRSA. At first we thought it was just another boo-boo and then it came to a head and we tried hot baths and tried to drain it. It just got more red and swollen. Ended up at the emergency room where they had to lance it and pack it with gause and leave it open - yuck. I guess it was about a year and a half ago. He still talks about it. But we were lucky in that he was old enough to swallow pills so the antibiotics were less painful. Still - the doctor at the hospital didn't make a big deal out of it. Talked to the pediatrician and he gave us ointment to put on any cuts or scrapes in the future. Thought he had a mild case once after that but the ointment cleared it up. I'm so sorry you're having to go through all of this. It's scarey. Keep us posted.
